"He was annoyed, he looked frustrated.”
The mother of late actress Jiah Khan, Rabia Khan has slammed actor Salman Khan for attempting to sabotage the investigation of her daughter’s suicide.
This news comes after the untimely death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput who committed suicide at his residence in Bandra.
His demise has sparked major controversy concerning bullying in Bollywood.
In 2013, Jiah Khan tragically committed suicide at her residence in Mumbai at the age of 25.
The late actress was allegedly in a relationship with actor Sooraj Pancholi. He was charged with a case of abetment to her suicide.
According to Rabia Khan, Salman interfered with Jiah’s case as he exerted his power to protect his protege Sooraj Pancholi.
Speaking to SpotboyE, Rabia revealed that Sushant’s death reminded her about her daughter’s unfortunate death. She said:
“What happened with Sushant has reminded me of 2015 when I went to meet CBI officer who had called me down from London.
“He said please come, we have found some incriminating evidence.
“I land up over there and he says, ‘Oh, by the way, Salman Khan calls me every day and says he has invested a lot of money, please don’t harass the boy, please don’t interrogate him, don’t touch him.
“’So what can we do madam?’ He was annoyed, he looked frustrated.”
Rabia further added:
“My condolences to Sushant Singh Rajput’s family. It is very heartbreaking, it is not a joke. Bollywood has to change, Bollywood has to wake up.
“Bollywood has to completely demolish bullying. I have to say bullying is also kind of killing somebody.”
Rabia Khan continued to mention the misuse of money and power. She said:
“If this is what is going to happen that you are going to pressurise and use your money and power to sabotage deaths and investigations, then I don’t know where we citizens can go to.”
Since the news of Sushant Singh Rajput’s death sent shockwaves across the nation, many people have been speaking out against the atrocities in Bollywood.
Kangana Ranaut condemned nepotism in Bollywood while Koena Mitra revealed there are many more people like Sushant suffering in the industry.
Actress Raveena Tandon also disclosed the struggles and “dirty politics” prevalent in Bollywood.
Not only that, but many people have been criticising filmmaker Karan Johar for his role in nepotism.
